Golden and the flavour is like mixed-candy sweets with a touch of elder flower. It taste like vingummi (doesn’t know the English word, but it’s a kind of candy) that have been mixed with hops. PERHAPS it would be OK with a piece of cake, but I doubt it...

Bottled: Golden coloured. Light hazy. Small white dense head. Heavy elderberry aroma. Sweet, frutiy and springlike. Flavour is sweet and watery. Loads of elderberries and a light sharpness. Is light spiced and dry in the end with a bitter edge.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 23, 2004
A hazy orange beer with no head. The aroma is dominated by elderberries. The flavor is sweet - too sweet for me - and rather artificial with a dry end with lots of elderberries. This is too much for me.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2004
I must admnit that I liked this beer quite a lot. Golden coloured. Aroma mainly of strawberries rather than elderberries. Refreshing, fruity and flowery. Slightly perfumated.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - FEB 19, 2004
Bottled at Jerusalem Tavern, London.
Huuhhh, this is different stuff. Hazy golden color, small head. Aroma is like berry chewing gum and very strange for a beer. Flavor is very sweet at first but has a bitter follow-up. Very candy-like and artificial with this curious hoppy bitterness. I really don't know if I like it or not.

SilkTork (5121) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2004
Pasteurised Bottle. BBE Jul 2004. Foul! Undrinkable. The fruit smell, like cough syrup, is mingled with cardboard hops and a touch of vomit. And the taste is like the aroma - only more intense, very bitter and more vulgar. Add to that a prickly carbonation and you have possibly the worse beer in the world.
